Re: BT Home Hub 6

You will not be prevented from using BT Wifi. I use a TP-link router instead of the Home Hub and don't transmit BT wifi. I use BT wifi a lot without problem.

Re: BT Home Hub 6

MJH62 - Many thanks, that's put my mind at rest. The thought occured to me that if HH6s are being sent out with this as a default and seemingly no way to alter it, then the number of hotspots will be going down, not up. Go figure, as our American cousins say.Smiley Wink

Re: BT Home Hub 6

I have just received a new Home Hub 6 (Smart Hub) which seems to be working well!

 

Having just checked back I see that the latest firmware version should end in 21EC which mine does, although it is dated 21st May 2016 and I am a bit surprised, bearing in mind that this is a fairly new piece of kit, that haven't been any further updates since then?

 

Or perhaps I am expecting too much! Smiley Wink

Re: BT Home Hub 6

I just joined BT Infinity 2 and have been using the Home Hub 6 since Monday. It seems to be working fine.

 

There have been a few disconnections but I think maybe that is because I am in the 10 day new connection period.

 

Firmware version:
SG4B100021EC
Firmware updated:
12-May-2016

Re: BT Home Hub 6

Frankly this is just pedantry. The point of the original question is why won't the hub assign the same IP number always, when it has been instructed to do so. Further discussion of whether this constitutes a static IP/fixed IP/assigned IP/or whatever purist term you favour does not contribute to the discussion. The question at hand is Why won't the hub perform the functionality R_G mentions above. I've tried it and it simply won't remember the instruction.

Re: BT Home Hub 6

Because its a totally rubbish piece of kit with bug-ridden firmware.

 

If people were a little more pedantic, life would be much simpler. In engineering you can't afford to use terms loosely with multiple meanings. Precision is all.
